Think of your favorite Black metal vocalist, album or band. There is a very good chance that Bathory inspired them. This was one of the first “real” Black Metal album’s and so many years later, it is still one of the best. Between Quorthon’s dark lyrics and throat ripping (incredible as well) vocals. That alone would make the album worth a BM fan’s purchase. The drums are what you would exspect from Bathory, having ok production on them but keeping a really raw sound to them. The guitar work is also raw but a little more technical than the BM that would be released in the few years followed. The type of song range from the truly dark “Woman of Dark Desires” and “Enter the Eternal Fire” to songs which are short amounts of chaos “Chariots of Fire” and songs like “Equimanthorn” which has elements of both. All in all, this a great classic Black Metal album. It is my second favorite Bathory album behind only “Blood, Fire Death” Enjoy.
